Fall Fashion Fun!

Autumn has finally peaked and the rolling hills of the 573 have been popping with bright bursts of delicious fall colors! Rich purples, radiant yellows, brilliant oranges, and of course the signature crimsons and golds of sumac and goldenseal dotting the fence lines and fields along the country roads. The perfect time to have a 573 Fall Fashion Shoot!



Last month we went on a search for some fresh friendly faces to feature in our Fall Fashion Fun! We were amazed at how many young local fashionistas entered the contest to be the next 573 Fall Models, but there could only be three.

...overwhelming natural beauty...

We met up with our new found 573 friends at Hawn State Park to compare and contrast the overwhelming natural beauty of the park's Autumn foliage with the unmatched fierceness of Ophelia's Fall Selection.



Meet 573 Magazine's Fall Fashion Models for 2021!



Grace

I am 16 years old and a Junior at Farmington High School and have lived in the area my entire life. After graduation, I plan to attend Mineral Area College for 2 years, then transfer to a 4 year university to study Sports Physical Therapy.


I love to sing...

I live with my mom and dad (Dave and Angela) and 2 brothers: Adam who is 27 and Levi who is 13. I have 3 dogs that I absolutely adore and would have 10 more if I could. I love playing soccer and baking sweets for others to enjoy. I love to sing and ride horses, but most of all, I love spending time with my family.

I loved every minute of it, it was a lot of fun!

The photo-shoot for me was something I have never done before. It was out of my comfort zone, but I loved every minute of it, it was a lot of fun!


I loved the outfits chosen for me!


Olivia

I am a 17-year-old Junior at Portageville High School. I am involved in Beta,

Student Council, FFA, FCA, and Archery. I enjoy dressing up, modeling, singing,

dancing, acting, riding ATVs, and hunting.


The location was awesome.

I am the youngest in my family. I have 2 older sisters and 1 older brother. My

parents, Rodi + Picca, have always been supportive of my ambitions and

dreams. I have 3 pets. Hannah Montana is a Yorkipoo that I got for my 3rd

birthday. Jessie is a beagle and Sally Jane is a pit bull mix.


I plan to attend college at SEMO. There I plan to major in Forensic Chemistry. I

love to watch shows like Criminal Minds and Forensic Files and I love to solve

cases. At SEMO, I also plan to minor in musical theater. The musical theater puts all my loves in one setting- Singing, dancing, and acting. Forensic Chemistry is my backup plan if I don’t make it to Broadway.


I had a blast at the 573 Fall Fashion Photo Shoot! I got to reconnect with one of my friends, Destiny. The location was awesome. AJ and the photographer were great and very professional. I hope to work with 573 Magazine more in the future.



Destiny

I enjoyed my experience with the 573 Magazine Fall Fashion Photo Shoot and hope to do more in the future!

Fun for the whole family! With a playground, rest facilities, and a variety of trails for hikers of any experience, Hawn State Park has something for everyone.


Today's shoot was an amazing experience. The brisk fall air, the bright beautiful autumn colors, the sounds of the babbling brook and the wind whispering rumors of the coming winter through the trees and falling leaves...it was all so surreal. Be sure to Get Out There and enjoy this beautiful 573 fall weather while you can, after all it won't be long til winter is here.



Get out there!
